How to Access MRTQ (moodle facilitated) Trainings on the Training Calendar

A previous 12/22 post on the process of access MRTQ On-demand training.

The Professional Learning Committee of FCCAM has been hearing that providers are having difficulty accessing Maine Roads To Quality Training with confusion of On-demand and facilitated trainings over the moodle platform. Our previous post for just On-Demand is linked above. We hope this post will provide a walk through that helps you in navigating trainings found on the Training Calendar.

It starts by accessing Maine Roads To Quality. There are multiple ways to get to the Training section you want.

  • If you are comfortable logging into your MRTQ Registry ( account start there. DO NOT “Log In” as you would to access the Online/On-demand training.
  • In the menu bar you will see “Training Calendar”. Click on that.

The next page will look something like this:

You can now search trainings from MRTQ as well as other Training Agencies. If you know the name of the training or have a “keyword” you can use the “Advanced Search”

Using Advanced Search for “MELDS” something like this might come up:

You can now access the training period that works for you by “click here for more information”. You will get description and info on the training / cost / location / price / hours / and space in class. etc.

If space in the trainings then proceed to sign up. If full you will be given the option to sign up on a waiting list. It is recommended that you sign up for the waiting list as MRTQ works to build capacity with new trainings when the list starts to fill up. If there are multiple classes being offered check each you could attend for current openings before adding your name to a wait list.


If you access MRTQ from a linked page where you are already logged in to this page you DO NOT need to access Online Training, but use the menu bar. Click “My Training” for the dropdown box and click Maine ECE Training Calendar. Follow the directions explained above for the Calendar Search.


  • Start from the MRTQ home page ( Hover over “Training” and a drop down menu list will appear.
  • You will find “Training Calendar”.
  • Click it.
  • Follow the directions explained above for the Calendar Search.

Once you have registered for a Calendar Training you access it through the Online Training access button.

Clicking on this button gets you to any MRTQ Trainings you are currently enrolled in. (It also gets you to the Quality Improvement Toolkit if you have already enrolled in it for ongoing access.)

The open page should looks similar to this:

Skip the block of language and scroll down a bit. You will see “My courses” and all the trainings you are enrolled in will be listed.

Click on the training title and you will be at the training itself.
